55% of the population voted to remain in the UK, much to the disbelief of the other 45%.
Shortly after the vote was announced, videos started to surface which appear to show evidence of vote rigging, but is there any truth to this?
A petition for an independent international enquiry has been launched on the website 38 Degrees and has gathered 63,800 signatures.
Despite this Chief Counting Officer for the Referendum, Mary Pitcaithly, released a statement (which you can read in full here).
Pitcaithly said “Independent international election observers attended and watched the counts taking place. Every count in Scotland provided access for print, broadcast and online media. In addition, Police Scotland were present at every count centre. As such the count centres received an unprecedented level of observation and scrutiny”
Pitcaithly concluded “I am satisfied that all counts were conducted properly.”
What do you think of the results and subsequent controversy? We’re the votes rigged? Is it simply a conspiracy theory? Share your view in the comments below.
